About this Book

Human Blood Groups is a comprehensive and fully referenced text covering scientific and clinical aspects of red cell surface antigens, including:


  • serology

  • inheritance

  • biochemistry

  • molecular genetics

  • biological functions

  • clinical significance in transfusion medicine

Over a century has passed since Landsteiner discovered the human blood groups, making the practice of blood transfusion possible. Yet, in the six years since the first edition of Human Blood Groups was published, new blood groups have been discovered, several blood group genes have been cloned, and the molecular backgrounds of numerous blood group variants have been worked out. All this new information has made the production of a second edition of Human Blood Groups timely.

This book is an essential reference source for all those working in the field of blood transfusion and blood banking.
